Increased latency due to database load
This week we made a two line, seemingly benign code change that had unexpected performance implications when placed under the high load of Sunday morning traffic. We've reverted the changes and our server loads (specifically our MySQL servers) are back to their typical load levels, resulting in normal response times. Kudos to our development, operations, and support teams for quickly identifying the issue and implementing the fix.
